  • Good answers to know when l buy a hand mixer!

  • I look forward to reading all the answers – mine broke on Sunday!

  • Always make sure you keep your warranty and receipt handy; in case you have problems with a new mixer.

  • Our sunbeam hand mixer has been working for years; very reliable and efficient.

  • I swear by my Bamix.

    I had one for absolutely years and wore it out.
    We couldn’t afford another so bought just a generic brand. Well it didn’t last very long at all before we needed another. Bought a bit better brand and same thing.
    So I made that one last just a bit more until I had saved for another Bamix.
    This time I even got a pretty color and these things are so strong.
    Love it.

  • I bought an Aldi “Lumina” hand mixer with bowl not too long ago. I am really happy with this product as it detaches from the bowl and can be used as a portable hand mixer. It was quite cheap ($30) and it I think that it is money well spent. I previously had a 30 year old General Electric hand mixer which I had to get rid of as it would only work with one beater.

  • I have a sunbeam mixer and its like over 5 years old now and still going strong

  • Sunbeam are great, their stuff seems to last

  • I have a Phillips hand mixer and a bamix stab blender that are 28 years old and still going strong.

  • useful answers for me. you know i was just going to ask this question as i have never used these are was wanting to buy one…thanks

  • Interesting answers. Appliances were made to last years ago. Nowadays they are manufactured offshore and the quality has declined dramatically. Ask your local dealers which products have better reputations and fewer returns and a warranty.

  • kenwoods are great

  • I love my bamix – expensive but it is great

  • I have a Sunbeam hand mixer that is still going strong (it must be 35 or more years old). I also have a Black & Decker Stick Blender which is useful for blending soups & it also must be 30 odd years old!

  • I find Breville and sunbeam very good brands

  • I had a small handheld Kenwood which was good. But now I mix as size Kenwwod.

  • Hello,
    I have a Kambrook which is 24 years old. Yesterday I decided to make marshmallows for the first time. A ‘stand’ mixer was recommended, due to the possibility that the small motor in a hand mixer would burn out due the long mixing time required. I don’t have a stand mixer so I took a chance on the Kambrook. Well, it took just over 10 minutes to whip the mixture to that glossy, fluffy stage. I kept feeling it to see how hot it was getting, and I was on the lookout for that awful burning smell. Neither happened. My little old Kambrook was an absolute champion, and my marshmallows are just delicious! Of course the worry is that they ‘don’t make them like they used to’! Good luck!

  • I always preferred Sunbeam especially when they were made in Australia

  • Not sure what you mean by “hand mixer”. I’ve got a Kenwood hand-mixer that’s nearly 40 years old, and it still works really well. I’ve also got a “stick” blender (like a Bamix) that’s only a cheap brand, and I’ve had it for 15 years and it’s fine too. More expensive doesn’t necessarily mean it works better or lasts longer.
